I just ordered 2 mallard drakes, 2 silver lace wyandotte(sp?) pullets and 4 assorted standard pullets. The ducklings are going to be mine to raise and keep, the wyandottes are for a friend, and the 4 assorted pullets I will enjoy raising up a little and then probably sell them. Here's my review of ideal: I really have to give Ideal Poultry credit. I've been buying from them for years. I'm a city farmer and I usually just raised birds up and finds them good pet homes we're they'll be appreciated. It's kind of a hobby I guess. That being I don't think I've ever spend more than $38 with shipping on my birds. I almost always order a mix of ducklings and chicks. From my experience with them I have never had a dead on arrival, and out of the maybe 6 or 7 orders I placed I only lost one "warming chick" They are good with their customer service and even though their birds aren't show quality they are so beautiful and look just like the pictures. None of my ducks or chickens from them ever got sick while I had them yet either. I love them! It's literately the only hatchery that you can get the exact breed you want and not spend a fortune. Oh that and they offer everything almost yearround. <3 Oh and how long do you're chicks usually take to arrive after you get notice they've been shipped? Mine only took a day last time. Is this the normal? I forgot, haha.
